Future of goat shows

Posted on August 15, 2013

     I saw the future of OK goat shows last evening.        I traveled near Carnegie to drop a goat off at Schneberger’s piece of paradise.  I pulled into the drive, through the gate, through the goat herd, dodged a chicken and two dogs and pulled up to the barn.  Jared came out of the barn.  I walked around the trailer and here came the first one, the first of the twin

Most Common Asked ?

Posted on August 14, 2013

     I get a lot of questions asked of me regarding this blog.  One of the most common is “How do I need to feed my goat?” or “What do I need to do to my goat at the show?”  These questions come in the form of emails, phone messages, texts, etc.  I normally don’t reply.  Why don’t I reply?  I haven’t seen the goat and therefore, can’t properly tell you.  Simply put, I

GO Juice

Posted on August 13, 2013

GO Juice is now available.  You can get it wherever Statewide distribution delivers feed.  Or from Troy B. Or I keep some of it on hand.   What is GO Juice?  GO stands for Gamma Oryzanol.  This is an active ingredient found in rice bran oil.  The Special K GO Juice is an extremely pure form of gamma oryzanol added to rice bran oil.   We have fed GO Juice for years.  It was a

     There are many different forms of retardation.  Some of it is more of a medical issue.  Some people would say that this goat deal has gotten retarded.  And then there are others that can just plain prove that we are retarded.  Enter Big Bill and myself.      We left my house Saturday morning headed to goat sales.  We stopped at Steve Simpson’s to look at goats.  Then we headed towards Perry to

Rain Terminology

Posted on August 10, 2013

     The worst word associated with rain is actually the lack of rain–DROUGHT.  Hopefully, we are seeing the end of this drought.  The end has to be close since Beaver actually got rain.        The other bad term associated with rain is FLOOD.  Tammy and I can tell you a thing or two about floods as we actually lost a house due to flooding back in the nineties.  It happened two years

Things everybody should see

Posted on August 09, 2013

This is just a list of stuff that everybody should see with their own eyes at least once.  Maybe even once a day. –That animal that just hits you where you go “Dang, I’m going to have to spend some jack to own that one.”  Could be a dog, goat, koala, steer, etc. –The deep, deep, dark, dark, blue water of the Pacific that you can just look down into and wonder just how deep

     Angus.  This isn’t a word of the day.  It is more an anology of the day.  Angus.  What do YOU think of when you hear “Angus”?  Me?  I think of the lead guitarist of AC/DC–Angus Young.  (and yes, there is a little thunderstruck playing right now).  Some think of really good cows.  The majority probably think of premium beef.  The Angus breed of cattle has done a tremendous job of marketing their brand

The importance of…

hitting the “save post” button.  As a result of not hitting the button last night, you, the readers have missed out on an incredibly well written piece.  It started to rain last night, so I sat down to write.  And write.  And write.  Then a power flash.  Then a power outage.  I wrote a tremendous piece full of social commentary, a tutorial piece on proper feeding/exercising instructions of goats complete with secret feed additives.  And

      It was a nice evening last night and a really nice morning today.   Noticed on an online auction that they have some genetics listed wrong.  The grand wether at 2013 OYE was a Freak On A Leash on a Hang 10 doe.  Ask Schneberger.  Hang 10 did NOT sire that wether.        I can’t hardly stand to watch espn or listen to espn on Xm radio right now.  I

     Last night, we had to deal with the down-side of getting rain–mosquitos.  We hadn’t seen many of them all summer, but they have now shown themselves.  It’s only fitting, as they can hang with all of the flies and these dang grasshoppers.          Time to start getting goats broke to lead and show.  It is 2 months away to the Tulsa state fair.  Time to get to work.  Tis the
